Folly Creek Kayak Tour | Daily! Book Now

Our Folly location, located at the landing adjacent to Crosby’s Seafood & Fish, is our most wild paddling outpost .  Even though it is not that far from the mainland, it provides a protected haven for bottlenose dolphins, rays, pelicans, egrets, herons and other wildlife.  Situated away from the boats that frequent the nearby Folly River, Folly Creek and the surrounding tributaries allow these animals to safely feed  along and within the estuary.

Your paddling views are of a sunken wooden “pirate ship,” oyster beds and fields of Spartina.  The estuary is teeming with biodiversity and supports blue crabs, hammerhead sharks, schools of fish, oysters, clams, bottlenose dolphins, egrets, herons, pelicans and much more.   It’s the nursery of the sea, where ocean animals start their lives, protected within nutrient-dense waters.

Dolphins along the coast of South Carolina and Georgia are unique in that they have learned how to hunt by working as a team to push fish onto the muddy banks.  Once the fish have been washed ashore, the dolphins quickly follow, temporarily beaching themselves as they eat mullet and other species off the banks.  Known as strand-feeding, this is a behavior that we often get to witness (from a respectable distance) while on our tours.

Trip Advisor Reviews

We have used Coastal Expeditions every time we went kayaking in Charleston and loved every minute! The last time we went, there were manatees, dolphins, fish, pelicans, and much more. I definitely recommend Coastal Expeditions if you want to spend time with your family outdoors, but don't want to go to any crowded beaches. Trip tip: Go early and it will be cooler and you will see more wildlife!
